    Had an awesome meal with my wife while vacationing at Margaritaville resort in Hollywood Beach. I had a bowl of the lobster bisque which was creamy and delicious. Fair amount of lobster meat. My wife had the Cesar salad and she said it was great as well. For our entrees, I had the New York strip steak which was huge and cooked to perfection. I was extremely impressed. My wife had the twin lobster tails that were pretty large and she wasn’t able to finish so I gladly obliged. Overall, we were both very happy with the meal and the waiter was very attentive and polite.

    The food was not that great. I had the lamb chops which was very bland. My husband had the wagyu steak more flavorful. Too pricey. I’ve been to other restaurants at this price point that was EXCELLENT. This is not a place I’d return to.

    No a place to eat a good steak. Server pushing the most expensive item saying it will be $200 next week, comes to our table and doesn’t refill empty glasses, took away essential utensils while eating, made assumption we were done and didn’t offer dessert menu….

    Good day JWB was recommended by my receptionist Joshua at the Margaritaville resort it was my mother’s 63rd birthday celebration and I wanted to treat her to an amazing dinner as part of the celebration, everything was going well the waitress was amazing my server was a little pushy and wanted us to order right away which I understand I notice he had other guests serving he recommended some dishes which I choose they were delicious. I paid my bill and realized that I had left the cash I wanted to use for tips inside my room 1752 I only had twenty dollars (15$) I gave it to my waitress, and I told my son to go back to the room for one hundred dollars in cash and put it in an envelope for my server 1295994/ Johnny L. My mom wanted to take pictures so we stepped out to take her pictures while I was in the lounge area with my family I saw my server walking towards me he was about 2ft from me when he yelled at me ma’am you forget to put the tip on your credit card I looked at him like are you serious I responded by saying no I did not forget he turn and walk away. The audacity of this man Johnny L how dear you, I will never come back, I was going to tip you one hundred dollars in cash in an envelope you should be fired for guest harassment am happy I didn’t hand you that envelope because you didn’t deserve to get a penny.

    $150 steak was lack luster. Every steak I’ve bought and grilled from Walmart was better. You know it’s not a good steak when half you have to spit into a napkin.

    Your usual relatively overpriced steakhouse. Why pay for a 70$ filet mignon that you can just as easily sear and serve in half the time in your home? It’s a splurge that doesn’t feel worth it. That said, the meat itself wasn’t strictly bad, and neither were the appetizers. Just expensive for the quality. Great service.

    In general was good, but overpriced. The salmon wasn't like what I expected, its a messy salad with a soup of dressing and the salmon on top, I wasn't expecting that.

    Reservation was for 930 and immediately they were rushing us to order and and the waitress had the nerve to tell us if we don’t hurry up our food might not be cooked right and I responded well I will send it back !!! And once food arrived they rushed us to order dessert (which we passed on) no one is thinking about dessert when we getting rushed to pick what to eat for dinner … never again

    Outstanding experience; better than pre-pandemic. Excellent French Onion Soup and the steaks were prepared flawlessly. Only off perfect comment is that it Could have a larger dessert menu. But since I rarely eat dessert it wasn’t an issue.

    Our server was most attentive. Brought my husband a full bottle of water to keep at the table. The bread was a little off but my French onion soup was divine. And we split a tomahawk ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes were smooth and well seasoned. All and all a wonderful meal. The French pressed coffee was a great experience and flavorful as well.
